Hmm …

… Derek Parfit’s quest for perfection. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

…  there is something thrilling about Parfit’s thoughts and photographs. The whole becomes a work of art, a vision rather than a proof of meaning in a godless world. 
Well, the photos are compelling, but the philosophy strikes me as so much wishful thinking. And, if identity and self don't really matter that much, what's the big deal about morality?
